Everything You Need for Your Pool Swim Workouts

Wet/Dry Swim Bag

Wet/Dry Swim Bag

Your standard gym bag won’t cut it when your gear is soaking wet, so you need a bag that allows you to separate the drenched from the dry while providing airflow to speed up that drying process. The Hurley Fusion Cinch Sack is an inexpensive and effective option that features a mesh front panel and a waterproof divider to keep your dry goods dry. At 19 inches tall and 15 inches wide, it’s also large enough to store basic equipment, like bathing suits, goggles, and fins. [$25; nike.com]

That said, if you’re getting serious about swimming, you can’t go wrong with the swimmer-favorite TYR Alliance 45L Backpack, which allows for more storage space, a larger expandable mesh pocket for wet gear, exterior hooks for hanging wet bathing suits, a water bottle pocket, and even a padded laptop pocket (if you’re brave enough to take your laptop with you to the pool).
